Subject Re: Google Summer of Code 2015 is coming
Date Sat, 07 Feb 2015 22:47:40 GMT
I think it would be good to participate in GSoC and would be available as a
mentor this year as well.
The following projects from our project wiki page could serve as nice GSoC
projects, IMO:

- Improving monitoring (I hope we make some progress in that direction
until GSoC starts, but there will be more metrics to collect and to
visualize.)
- Spatial data analysis API
- Cascading on Flink

Who else would volunteer to be a mentor?
Do you see other potential GSoC projects, e.g., in Flink Streaming, Gelly,
or the planned ML library?

Cheers, Fabian
